Synthetic Overture, 2018

For this project I questioned societies current relationship with social media and its impact on our mental health. Taking inspiration from Neo-Nior and artists such as Henri Magretti’s piece ‘The Treachery of Images’, I began to challenge the often-false personas streamed online. Interviewing peers, I determined key words and effects to translate into my textiles and silhouettes. Through use of layering and embroidering plastics and denims, I created the distorted and fragmented personalities that we use to distract or choose to hide.
